Hello! Welcome to my blog!! My name is Katie, I'm a 16-year-old girl who recently moved from Wales to Lincolnshire. I have a very rare, incurable autoimmune disease called Myasthenia Gravis. I have had symptoms since I was 12 years old, and it basically makes my body "fight itself" stopping any 'signals' from reaching my muscles. I, unfortunately, am a very bad case. I am affected everywhere. My eyes, mouth, tongue, swallowing, neck, limbs, hands, and worst of all, breathing. In September 2016, I was admitted to hospital where I spent the next 6 months trying to find a treatment that worked for me. In that time I was ventilated for a week because I got so bad that my breathing stopped completely. I was then put on a treatment called 'Plasma exchange' which helped a lot, but I need it a lot more frequently than expected. Because of this, they decided to put a permanent line in my neck as an easy access point so I can receive treatment without having to stay in the hospital anymore. It still sucks A LOT! But I do feel as though I am getting better, even if it is only slightly. Now I am out of the hospital and getting on with life, I have decided to create this blog so it can be my 'escape' from the world. I don't want this blog to be about my disease because I know it doesn't define me, it's not who I am. I want this blog to be about my interests and what I enjoy in life. I love all things fashion, beauty, photography, and 'lifestyle' related. this blog includes everything and anything I love. It's a place to come to for those times when you feel lost inside your own head. A place to feel motivated, and inspired. And I really, really hope you enjoy!

A Day At The Beach

I've recently moved away from Wales, where I was surrounded by fields and hills and not much else,  to a small, seaside town just outside of Lincoln, and although I've been living here for...
